A ghost town in the desert of New Mexico makes for the perfect location to see how much air a truck can get. At least that’s what Red Bull thinks. The company’s driving team, which is known for crazy stunts and world records, sought to beat the Guinness World Record distance of 301 feet for launching a race truck. Driver Bryce Menzies throttled it and set out over a ramp and a building or two, and officially beat the record.
